FRANK ARMSTRONG -- Photographs -- About

Photo: Louie Despres


I have been photographing for more than 50 years.  For the first decade and a half, I worked as a photojournalist working for the University of Texas, Austin mostly supplying illustrations for various in-house and national publications.  I began my teaching career at UTAustin and later in workshops throughout the southwestern US.  Currently I teach both digital and analog photography at Clark University in Worcester, MA.  In 1979, I was awarded the Dobie-Paisano Fellowship for a portfolio of central Texas social landscapes.  Moving to the east coast in the early 1980's, I continued to pursue my interest in the interaction between man and the landscape.  For many years, I traveled once or twice a year to Big Bend National Park, and in 2001, my monograph, "ROCK, RIVER & THORN, The Big Bend of the Rio Grande"  
was published by Scotia-Waterous, Canada.  I have exhibited widely across the US, and am represented in a number of permanent collections including the University of Texas at Austin, Houston Museum of Fine Art, Worcester Art Museum, Amon Carter Museum of Western Art, and Museum of Modern Art.
